-For additional detail, I used garbage bag ties for the fuel and brake lines. I just stripped the paper and super glued them in place.
-The hood hinges were scratch built using left over plastic trees and throtle return springs from Model Car Garage.
-For the oil leaks, I used Indian Ink. The engine "gunk" is Indian Ink brushed over putty.
-The base is what's left over from and Acrylic display case that had an unfortunate shelf accident. I sprayed it with Ashphalft undercoating. No happy with the result, I took a quilted papper towel to it while it was still wet to give it a more realistic texture. Next I misted grey primer and then a little flat black over that. I couldn't be more thrilled with how it turned out!
-For the debris, I was going to purchase some Diorama leaves at $12 a bag. Upon closer inspection, I realized that it didn't look any different than fish food, so I went to my local Dollar store and purchased some Goldfish Flakes.
The base looks unfinished to me, but I haven't seen any sort of extras that would make it more complete yet. Perhaps something will jump out at me later.
Now if anyone has some hungry Gold Fish, I have more than enough flakes to go around........

I felt something was missing. So I added a broken and weathered fence and spare hood. The hood was left over form the kit and the fence is made of popsicle sticks and balsa wood for the fence posts. Ink was applied to the wood and lightly sanded for the weathered look.
